Pancake Pajama Breakfast for Autistic and Special Needs Childrens and their families
Play-Place for Autistic Children to host Pancake Pajama Breakfast for Children affected by Autism and other Special Needs.
The Pancake Breakfast will feature Chris Cakes and their famous flying, flipping pancake show. There will be cartoons, crafts, 50/50 raffle and more. Paulie the PAC Rat will make his dazzling debut and will be available for pictures with his PAC pals.
According to parent and founder of PAC, Shell Jones, "More kids will be diagnosed with Autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. Therefore, our mission is critical and cries out for immediate support."
PAC's center will include a variety of social, occupational, and physical overtones to promote reciprocal and imaginative growth and development. It will feature a variety of therapeutic elements, including a Cosmic Laser Light Chalkroom (writing skills, artistic talents, imagination)
The cost is $5.00 for Adults and $3.50 for kids 12 and under. Reservations are required. The deadline is September 21, 2012. For reservations, visit www.autisticplayplace.org or contact Event Coordinator Mary Kilian, by phone at 586-254-6533.
About Play Place for Autistic Children
PAC's mission is to create a fun-filled, family experience for children and families affected by autism and other special needs issues. Through a unique play-powered environment, PAC combines recreation and education with a variety of social, occupational and physical overtones to promote reciprocal and imaginative growth and development. Our bottom line is to create an oasis of shared ambiance encouraging friendships between children and among parents.
PAC is a 501c(3) foundation dedicated to the support and growth of autistically, physically and mentally challenged children through inclusive play, programming, outreach and group therapies. Formulated on the theory that services and treatment can be expensive and not covered by most health insurance, PAC's objective is to alleviate costs, optimize alliances and defeat autism and other challenges facing children and families via big smiles and breakthrough moments. Our one-of-a-kind facility will house a computer cafe, hair cut hut, chalk-board laser light lounge, bouncers, swings and more, together with budget-conscious supplementary services, including group speech and occupational therapy, hyperbaric chamber therapy and sensory integration services.
